 It's time for the new Stampotique Designer's Challenge - hosted by Libby this week!  Here's her challenge in her own words :)
This week I'd like to challenge you to use something that makes you see your craft project in a whole different light. It can require you pull out supplies you don't typically use, or try new techniques. Or maybe it's something you use all the time! I'd like you to use a transparent element on your design. Whatever you'd like - acetate, glass, left-over plastic packaging - if it's clear, it's fair game! I'm excited to see what you come up with!
Here is my bookmark project for Libby's challenge to use something transparent.  I have used a few things that qualify... clear Goosebumps Texture Spray, clear Dew Drops and clear glue too!
Stamps by Stampotique:
Great MoonYou Give Me WingsReach Your Goals
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink (Tuxedo Black)
IMAGINE Crafts® Fireworks!™ Craft Spray (Cantaloupe)
IMAGINE Crafts® GooseBumps™ Texture Spray (Matte)
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Kaleidacolor™ Dye Inkpad (Tomato Vine)
The background is a resist technique created using the clear Goosebumps spray.  Just spray it on, let it dry and then rub the gorgeous inks from the gorgeous Kaleidacolor Tomatoe Vine ink pad over top!  Voila!  The moon, bunny and words are all cut from shimmering papers made by spraying Xpress-It paper with Cantalope Fireworks spray - it's homemade shimmer stock!  The piece is finished off with a few clear Dew Drops adhered with clear glue! :)  Be sure to play along with the challenge for your chance to win Stampotique bucks!
